Elon Musk overtakes Jeff Bezos and becomes the richest man in the world
Elon Reeve Musk is an entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX; Tesla Motors CEO; vice president of OpenAI; founder and CEO of Neuralink; and co-founder and president of SolarCity.
This Thursday (January 7), Elon Musk became the richest person in the world thanks to a rise in the company’s shares on the stock exchange.
Tesla crossed the $ 700 billion value barrier for the first time after bonds rose 3%.
Musk surpasses Jeff Bezos by $ 1.5 billion. Bezos was hit hard by the divorce, in which he had to give up a quarter of his stake in Amazon to his ex-wife, MacKenzie Scott.
The appreciation on the one hand and the costs of divorce on the other brought Musk to the throne of the billionaires.
